The Nurse Scholarship Program provides university scholarships to deserving young people in poor communities in our region. The program provides scholarship incentive for outstanding participants in the Multiplying Light educational program with the ultimate hope of empowering Dominican nursing leaders who can serve as role models in their home communities.
Light A Candle Mission maintains a dormitory and computer lab for nursing students in La Romana and provides mentoring / academic support.
This program receives the support of Jonas Philanthropies and other generous supporters.
We believe that empowerment of intelligent and motivated young people, who would not otherwise have higher education opportunity, has true potential to create positive change for individuals, communities, our country and the world.
